Why not develop wind farms on mountains that are already being used for ski resorts?

Because of the potential danger from ice throw. As the above answer indicates, ice throw does not present a danger except for the area close to turbines (that is, within a few hundred meters). At ski areas, however, turbines would typically have to be sited very close to operating lifts and trailheads, making ice throw a safety concern.
